The Book Bin is a locally owned, family operated business that has been in the same family since 1984. Three generations currently spend their time between the Corvallis store and the two Salem stores. Book Bin East is the most recent store, on Salem’s Lancaster Drive; it opened in the fall of 2013. While it is still growing, there is one thing we know for sure it will have soon: a coffee shop. Corvallis and Downtown Salem both have feline mascots: Tess in Corvallis, the grandmotherly matron of the Book Bin, and Rose in Salem, who is young, frisky, and shares a birthday with H. P. Lovecraft. Tess Rose...Read More

I’ve been a fan of Nate Powell for a long time.
I first encountered his work more than a decade ago when I worked as an assistant editor at Dark Horse Comics. Nate sent in samples of his work to see if we’d publish him, and I championed his intense, beautifully-drawn comics. Nothing came of that, unfortunately, but it didn’t seem to hurt Nate too badly. He went on to receive a grant from Shakespeare and company Books to self-publish his first comics series, Walkie-Talkie. Tiny Giants and the Ignatz-Award-winning Swallow Me Whole came followed from Soft Skull Press and Top Shelf respectively. So, yeah, he dealt with the rejection well.
We’re collecting donations for Marion-Polk Food Share – and we need your help!
The Book Bin stores are joining MacMillan’s Children’s Publishing Group’s Crenshaw food drive. It’s a national push for independent bookstores to gather food for their community. At least 90 stores are taking part – and we’re one of them.
Besides being a good thing to do, it’s a bit of a competition. The store that brings in the most food items wins a visit from Katherine Applegate, author extraordinaire!
Applegate is a big deal in the kids book world. She rose to fame as author of the Animorphs series, and gained critical acclaim for The One and Only Ivan, which won the highest award in kid lit back in 2013. We’d love to bring her to Salem.
Will you help? Non-perishable items can be dropped off at any Book Bin location during the month of October. All donations will be used locally to feed the thousands of people that Marion-Polk Food Share helps each month.
